Wild Bears and ‘Selfies’?

As normal, it’s the season bears are out and about trying to catch the seasonal salmon, but this time around the tourists reactions weren’t so normal. Visitors at Taylor Creek South Lake Tahoe, took full advantage of the bears sightings and many were attempting to take up close and personal ‘selfies’.

Park officials have always encouraged picture taking, but never thought tourists would be putting their lives in danger to do so. People are forgetting these are wild animals that have the ability to attack when feeling threatened. Officials may have to close the popular bear sighting if this safety hazard continues.

Be smart when interacting with wildlife! Take the time to learn more about your safety and the wild bears.

South Lake Tahoe is Getting a Makeover

If you’ve visited the South Lake Tahoe recently you may have seen some beautification happening. From manicured sidewalks to completely updated buildings, and even new shopping centers, South Lake Tahoe is going through some mild gentrification. Amongst simple upgrades in the city are some serious business upgrades as well.

Basecamp is one of several re-vamped Tahoe favorites. Another is 968 Park, an eco-friendly, LEED-certified boutique hotel in which everything from the granite in the bathrooms to the wood used in the elevator, from the kinetic metal sculptures to the corten steel exterior, is recycled. Down the street toward the beach, the Landing Resort & Spa, an upscale boutique hotel, with a five tar-rating. Across the street, in Stateline, Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course is bulldozing nearly its entire site for a proposed 154-room lodge, 10,000-square foot spa and 120-seat restaurant. And the late, though not lamented, Horizon Casino high-rise is undergoing a $60 million renovation and hopes to re-open “by ski season” as the Hard Rock Casino.

Once all the dust clears, South Lake Tahoe will have gone thorugh a serious and much needed makeover. Learn more about Tahoe’s newest haunts:
